F. S. G. Piggott, the great Japan expert and Japanophile, who in his capacity as supervisor to the translators’ class had influenced the war-time courses from the start, left the School in October 1945, soon after the Japanese surrender, when Translators V came to an end. He describes the circumstances surrounding his invitation to supervise the war-time courses at School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), the questions he was often asked by students, and his admiration for the efficiency of the courses. When the war-time courses ended, many of the teachers left School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) and made a fresh start. Frank Hawley was an instructor at SOAS for only eight months before he left in July 1943 with Aiko Clark to work in the Japanese Section of the BBC. Yamamoto Fumiichi went to work as a scriptwriter in the Japanese section of the BBC where he wrote programmes about life in Britain for broadcasting to Japan.
